UMass Boston and Harvard journalists to produce daily Newspaper at the 2004 Democratic National Convention

Journalists from the UMass Boston and the Nieman Foundation at Harvard University will publish MediaNation, a two-page daily newspaper covering the news media and media issues at the Democratic National Convention.

The independent newspaper will be published in the Boston Globe during the convention, July 26 through 29, as well as continuously updated on the World Wide Web (http://www.medianation.umb.edu ). The unique partnership links 20 students from UMass Bostons Center on Media and Society and The Harvard Crimson.

We plan to cover the 15,000 accredited media while they cover the politicians," said Ellen Hume, a senior research fellow at UMass Boston and director of the Center on Media and Society. The opportunity is there for our students to break national news.

The project was conceived by Seth Effron, special projects director for the Nieman Foundation. He and Hume are leading it. Hume is a former Wall Street Journal Washington, D.C. correspondent. Effron spent much of his journalism career covering government and politics in North Carolina and was the first executive editor of Nando Media, the pioneering online news service of McClatchy newspapers. Other news professionals will supervise and edit the project as well as supply content to MediaNation.
